Moonlighter is coming to Nintendo Switch! FAQ, next steps & new FX.

Posted by Digital Sun Games (Creator)



A LOT of people have been asking about this during the last few months, and we can finally announce it: Moonlighter is going to be released on Nintendo Switch! Yay! :D  

We know that you all have some questions, so here's a quick FAQ: 




Yes. It's possible, but at a cost of $10 USD.


Only 1 copy per backer.

We would love to be more flexible about this, but with our current tools and resources the required logistic would be just too much for us.


Summarizing, Nintendo is charging us for each extra code. Since it has an extra cost for us, the game's price will be slightly higher. That also affects any backer willing to change his current platform to Switch.

We've been trying to figure out the exact amount in order to adjust this extra cost at maximum, and USD $10 feels pretty accurate. The idea is not to make any profit from this, but at least ensure that we're not investing the money from the other segments of the development.


No. The Switch version of the game will be released few months after the regular release. On day one, we will release the game on Xbox One, PC, Mac, Linux (Steam/DRM-free) and PS4.


We don’t have anything planned at the moment.


Summarising: It is possible to change the platform of one of your copies, and at a cost of USD $10.


So, in order to process your requests, we are setting up a small survey. It will be open only UNTIL DECEMBER the 1st (01.12.2017), so please hurry up if you want to change your platform!


After December 1st, we’ll start to process the payments. We will directly contact you with the following steps.

Finally, as we receive each payment, we will update your backer profile in our pledge manager (BackerKit).

You can expect this whole process to end before the end of this year :)



We have a great new for you all: The game can be played now from the beginning to the end on PC! :D  

We still have some last details to polish but our efforts are now focused on the console versions (Xbox One and PS4).  

Also, if you remember, we've been working for some time on the combat FX. Here's a sample of the final result!



Finally, we're starting to have some time for creating proper backer rewards. Stuff like the Art Book are going to be amazing! We'll keep you all updated about this in the following updates.

Thanks for your support!  




By the way, a friend is doing this beautiful indie game currently on Kickstarter: 





It's called Deiland, and it's about managing a little planet and having adventures in fantasy places. Go take a look! :D  [LINK]

      HI, I just see that my change for my backer ps4 copy for Nintendo Switch didn't work. There's is a way to look if you really received my answer ? I want it on Nintendo Switch, but I realized with the comment... maybe I was late for the change ?! Not sure. Thank for your help and I'm looking forward for this game. -Michael

      Looks like I received an email with my response to the form, so I was able to go in and change it.

      Also, technically everyone will have the ability to purchase an additional copy for their switch, it'll just probably have to be at regular price.

      But honestly these guys deserve it, the game is looking amazing and I can't wait to get my hands on it.

    15. limitlis on

      Well this is embarrassing, I checked my reward level on kickstarter instead of backerkit... so my Switch from submission is wrong, should've been from XBOX One instead of DRM Free. Sorry about that. Let me know if I should do a second submission or leave it be

      Hi there!

      You can see what's your currently selected platform by entering your backer profile here: (you need your backer mail in order to log in).

      About the Add-On, it's probably not possible at the moment :/

      Thanks for your support!

      I'd just like to say—that trailer is AMAZING. Great quality and sound. And I love how the Joy-Con controllers open up to reveal the console at the end. What a great nod to the Switch.

      I'm really looking forward to this game's release. And happy to hear that you're in the beginning stages of tackling physical backer rewards. I chose the retro physical game box as an add-on to my initial pledge, so I'm super excited to see what you come up with. Any news on the OST? I seem to recall you guys scrapped/parted ways with the original game composer.

      Also, hurray for the nod to Deiland! I voted in favor of it when it was featured at the Square Enix Collective a couple weeks back. I'm definitely supporting those guys. The game looks like a ton of fun.

      Keep up the great work!!

      Oh nice ! This is another (good) reason to buy the Nintendo Switch !! :D
      +1 to the ability to buy a backer copy for Switch in addition to my PC copy.

      So you say that the game can be played fully on PC, does that mean the game is ready on PC or people who have it on PC can play it?

    21. Misia Clive on

      Hi is there a way to know which platform you chose? I honestly can't even remember if it was PC or PS4.. I'm thinking of changing to the Switch but I just can't remember which I chose first... thanks!

    22. Martin Kaca on

      Would there be a way to addon a copy for the switch instead of switching over an existing copy? I wouldn't mind owning it for both PC and my Switch. If so, what would the cost be for this and how would I have to go about doing it?
